George Sand

George Sand, the pseudonym of Aurore Lucile Dupin, was born in Paris in 1804. In November of 1838 she travelled to Mallorca with her children and the musician Frédéric Chopin, on board the boat El Mallorquín. Initially they stayed at Son Vent (Establiments) and subsequently in the Cartoixa de Valldemossa (Carthusian monastery), until leaving the island in February of 1839. In 1841 she published A winter in Mallorca, where she describes her impressions of the landscape and character of the inhabitants of Valldemossa.

George Sand maintained links with progressive democrats and celebrated the end of the French monarchy. She fought for women’s rights and her politicial ideas. She died in 1876 at the age of 72.
